It's been excellent, especially for web development. I usually code in one monitor and preview my page or application in the other monitor. It's also good for Flash. I can put the actions panel in its own monitor, and everything else in the other one.

I guess it's a gadget, but it's really hard for me to function without 2 monitors--I feel cramped. In short, it's worth it. My brother does it to have the TV or a game in one window, and chatting in the other.

Lots of cool stuff you can do better with 2 monitors. I recommend it.

I have a radeon 64 7500le

Also note that some cheap cards must be installed in the bios and be the primary, which is a problem becasue you cant have TWO of these.  make sure that when you buy cards that can be secondary,.
